I don't mind eating little ones but this one felt quite big and it sort of put up a struggle on the way down 

Hopefully a strong black coffee raining down on it will finish it off

I think you've got the makings of research for a thesis there - you'll end up with a Doctorate in Horticulture at this rate ......

Leave it until it's confirmed Davie - you never know, there may be a wonderful ornamental form I'm not aware of ............. 

Plant ID please??

It looks very much like Fat Hen to me - an annual 'weed' that I used to hoe out of Pa's sugar beet field.  An Indian friend calls it Lamb's Quarter and cooks with it, and apparently it's also used as a herb in parts of the US.

But I might be wrong .........

Gt Burnet is A Good Thing in my opinion - especially in wildlife gardens - it could do with some support - hazel twigs or the like - it can spread a bit if it's happy but shouldn't be too hard to keep in check.

Don't know about the other - hopefully you'll get some flowers soon and that will give us more clues ....
